Sites About Generosity and Giving

GenerousMind - Over the years we have been taught to be generous with our money and our time, but in the Idea Economy, who is talking about being generous with our minds?  We believe that a Generous Mind is one that has several key characteristics:

  • 1. observant of the world around it
  • 2. disciplined not to lose the precious thoughts that pass by
  • 3. passionate about knowledge transfer
  • 4. wise to understand what ideas a specific person needs

Being a Generous Mind is not an automatic thing. Some people find it easier than others, but everyone must work to show generosity in this way. Our passion is to help people see the power of being generous with their ideas and to work with organizations around the world to develop content that has a powerful impact on the lives of people.
